Over forty years ago our city centre evangelism was started by Assistant Pastor, Mr Jack Bell who was joined later by our elder John McDermott. These two brethren along with many others have continued this open-air witness until the present day.
We aim to communicate the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of Glasgow, and this is done in a number of ways.
Our evangelism is largely centred round the preaching of the gospel and the distribution of Christian literature. Those who speak are ordinary members of our church who step up to the microphone to share their testimony of what Christ has done for them. The people who speak come from a wide range of backgrounds, from people who have been brought up in Christian homes, to those who have been saved from drug abuse.
On Saturday night, we also convey God's message through music. We have vocalists, accompanied by instruments, singing many types of gospel songs, ranging from modern hymns to more traditional numbers.
As well as telling people about God's saving grace, we feel it is important to show God's love in a practical way. For this reason we have a soup kitchen, which is financed by our church and donations from the general public, to feed and clothe the homeless people in Glasgow.
Zion Baptist welcomes everyone to visit our street activities. There will always be someone to talk to you, whatever your background. We have had many visitors to our church who were first attracted by what they heard in Glasgow town centre. We look forward to meeting you!
